The true meaning of the Christian icon, rather than artistic and cultural, is theological, liturgical, ecclesial, mystical.
The present volume contains the first part of the interventions Study Day held in Bologna in April 2014, dedicated to exploring this complex universe, with particular attention to the icons acheropite.
"After the Incarnation of the Word, everything is dominated by the face, the human face of God" (P. Evdokimov), whose beauty we see the glory of God. A fine example of this transcendent beauty is offered by the extraordinary collection of icons Russian he preserved at the Theological College of St. Anthony Bologna: the second part of the book consists of a large iconographic section, which contains the list of all the icons and play commentary of some of them, representative of the entire collection.
